Simple Preparations for Easter

Simple Preparations for Easter

We’re preparing for Easter!  As a Christian, it’s our most important celebration of the year.  This year Easter is in March, which is really not that far away.  We found this great Jesus Storybook Bible to read everyday before Easter during Lent.  It has 44 passages and is a super easy daily read.  Every night we read a passage and eat a Hershey Kiss (in the plastic eggs).

If you are looking for a way to encourage your child’s understanding of the Bible, the book is filled with excellent illustrations and stories.  Note:  They are adapted stories, not literal translations.  I’d recommend it for ages 3 and up; however, my big kids (8 and 11) and they are enjoying it.

A few years ago I realized that I had many boxes of Christmas stuff and hardly any Easter decorations or meaningful materials to use with my children.  When the kids were younger we had the Resurrection Eggs, which were were a great teaching tool.  I’ve long looked for a way to countdown to Easter.  Last year during Advent we read nightly Christmas stories and had a little treat.  The kids loved it.  It was special to cuddle on the couch and do something different.  I’m happy to find something to use with them with them for Easter and hope it’s a tradition we can continue for years to come.
